From the District Council website:
Rochford District Council are reminding residents of the heritage in their High Street with a special weekend opening of one of the Districts’ most treasured landmarks – the Rayleigh Windmill on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 December from 12noon-3pm.
An image of Rayleigh Windmill.The Council hope that the open weekend will be another reason for people to go to Rayleigh when they are sales shopping or looking for somewhere to visit when they’ve spent all their Christmas money as entry is FREE!
After taking in all that history inside the Windmill you can put down your shopping bags to relax and unwind in the sensory garden adjacent to the Windmill.
This year, the Rayleigh Windmill retained its Quality Assured Visitor Attraction accreditation from Visit England for the fourth year in a row. In their report, Visit England, the national body that assesses visitor attractions throughout the country, praised the warm welcome offered by the volunteers as well as their enthusiasm and knowledge of the Windmill and its history.
